Learn French in France, in the heart of Normandy
Our teaching methods
Normandie Formation offers an individualised approach to students: everything is done to make sure you enjoy a pleasant and productive stay. Our classes emphasise communication. After enrolment, you will benefit from innovative lesson planning, where effective, practical and fun activities ensure you enjoy your studies and more importantly: make great progress!
Group courses take place in the morning and/or early in the afternoon (depending on the formula), and are usually split into two parts : the first session concentrates on the study of new syntactic structures, both grammatical and lexical. The second part puts these studies into practise through communicative activities. Students practise speaking through role play activities, putting new vocabulary into real-life situations.
In the afternoon, or during your day-off (according to your program), make the most of your spare time : we will be pleased to advise you on the various nearby monuments and sites. We also offer optionnal excursions (Rouen…).
Wishing to work on a particular point ?
We can cater for your specific demands (grammar, literature, specialised vocabulary, press review, phonetics, colloquial French… ). Our one to one lessons are designed according to individual needs of students.
For instance, you can attend the group class in the morning,
and an individual lesson in the afternoon.
Exam preparation courses
We regularly organise practical courses and workshops focusing on exam preparation :
- TCF DAP (Test de Connaissance du Français – Demande d’Admission Préalable)
- TCF TP (Test de Connaissance du Français – Tout Public)
- TCF ANF (Test de Connaissance du Français – Accès à la Nationalité Française)
- TCF Québec (Test de Connaissance du Français – Québec)
- DELF (Diplôme Elémentaire de Langue Française)
- DALF (Diplôme Approfondi de Langue Française)
This course focuses on strengthening the different skills that will be tested in the exam, such as oral and written comprehension, oral and written production. The students work on the methodology, vocabulary and all the themes specific to the prepared exam, while developing their grammatical and communicative skills.
